According To Rosie O'Donnell, Ellen DeGeneres's Remark Was Something She Has Never Gotten Over
Rosie O'Donnell explained why she never appeared on Ellen DeGeneres 's old talk show, which was a strange reason. Despite paving the way for DeGeneres and her canceled series, the star of Now and Then said on Thursday's episode of Watch What Happens Live that the voice actress from Finding Nemo snubbed her.
O'Donnell revealed to Andy Cohen that he and his wife had an "awkward" experience. When her program was about to premiere and mine had ended, Larry King appeared on Ellen and asked, "Whatever happened to Rosie O'Donnell?" Her TV show was a flop. She abandoned us after coming out as a lesbian.
And Ellen said—and I quote—"I don't know Rosie." This is not a friendship. Even at 60 years old, O'Donnell said DeGeneres' comments to the public still hurt her.
When O'Donnell's inner voice asked him, "Did, I just hear that, or was that a hallucination?" he was in bed with Kelli Carpenter. As a result, I was emotionally traumatized and never fully recovered.
The Mr. Wrong star, who is 64 years old, had made an appearance on The Rosie O'Donnell Show and joked about coming out as Lebanese. However, DeGeneres's recent statements dissuaded O'Donnell from making an appearance on her show, despite being invited to do so at the end of the show's run.
The actress from "Harriet the Spy" stated that she desired to take someone with her to make the situation a bit less unpleasant; however, the staff of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" did not want to do that, so O'Donnell decided not to bring anyone.
As the session came to a close, O'Donnell said to Cohen, "I hope all good aspects of her life and that she should be well, so there you are." [Case in point].
